Semiconductor manufacturer Frontier Silicon says it has a new module that achieves 100-hour battery life for portable DAB digital radios. The change increases listening time and reduces implementation costs, according to the company.
The Venice 4.0 FS2024 DAB/FM/RDS module enables battery-powered radios to operate in DAB mode for 100 hours using standard alkaline batteries. Frontier says the module is backward compatible with previous versions of the Venice series.
Frontier uses its latest Apollo silicon tuner to achieve what it says is a high level of integration on the RF front end of Venice 4.0. Apollo combines Band III DAB capability with Band II for FM/RDS functions.
The Venice 4.0 DAB/FM/RDS module will be available to receiver makers by year-end.
